WHAT IS THE WHOLE DUTY OF MAN?
Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. Ecc 12:13
Let us understand the commandments of God towards man is Mark 12:29-31 And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Children of God; The Lord our God is one Lord: And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, You shall love your neighbour as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these.
Our Lord and Saviour Jesus loved us first, Hereby perceive we the love of God, because Jesus laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. 1 John 3:16 so that we can be saved from hell punishment through his holy blood sheded in the cross for our sins.
John 10:11-14 Jesus said, I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd gives his life for the sheep. But he that is a worker, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, sees the wolf coming, and left the sheep, and flees: and the wolf catches them, and scatters the sheep. The worker flees, because he is a worker, and cares not for the sheep. I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine. We should believe Jesus is true God and he created us, hence he loved us so much that he took our all sin upon him on the cross to make you and me worthy for his kingdom of heaven.
We have to become his disciples or sheep to follow him, so that we could be with Jesus in Heaven. Matthew 16:24,25 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. Lord help me to follow this commandments.
Deny ourself means we should come out from worldly worry, fear, doubt and unbelief and keep our faith on our God Jesus he will provide my all needs and requirements daily and I am going to live for him from today onwards because he loved me and sacrified his life in cross for me. To do accordingly we should ask grace from our God Jesus.
Matthew 19:26-29 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible. Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed you; what shall we have therefore? And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That all of you which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, all of you also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Children of God. And every one that has forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.
We will get all blessings of world when we obey his commandments and receive eternal life also in heaven for our life after our death also. So brother believe God and he can help both of us to obey his commandments to do our duty and Iam expecting you to see in the kingdom of Jesus in Heaven. Iam teaching you this because I want to fulfill the second commandments of God in my life, I don’t want to go to hell. Lord thought me through believe on Jesus and obeying Bible words will take me to heaven the same Iam telling you to do. To save your own souls for heaven. Mark 12:31 And the second is like, namely this, You shall love your neighbour as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these. You also share this message with others and loved ones. Amen
Let us pray: Heavenly Father we praise you and give all glory to you Lord. Thank you for sending your son Jesus Christ to save me from hell punishment. Thank you Jesus Christ for taking my sin punishment on the cross and sheded your Holy blood to make me worthy to enter your kingdom of heaven. I believe that Jesus Christ have Crucified for my sin and his blood can wash my sin and make me holy, hence I ask forgiveness for all the sin I have done in the name of Jesus Christ. Thank you Holy Spirit help to understand the above words and obey them. In Jesus precious name I pray. Amen
